Dodge stratus 6 cyl 2005 not sure of engine size. I only want to advise my daughter on what she should do about replacing her water pump. Car seemed to be running fine but was losing coolant. Car was found to have a leaking water pump. Dealer suggested the timing belt should be replaced. Is it common practice to replace timing belt when replacing a water pump.

It is common practice to replace the water pump when replacing the water pump also. If the timing belt has recently been replaced than it would not be necessary to replace it again. If the belt is original than it makes perfect sense to replace it when the water pump is replaced as the timing belt will need to be removed in order to replace the water pump. There is no additional labor coast just the additional parts cost of the timing belt.

When it is done you shouldn't have to worry about it for the next 100,000 miles or so.

If you don't replace it when you have the water pump replaced than down the road when the timing belt is due for service you will have to pay for all the labor costs again to replace the water pump.

Hello, I would like to know the gap for the spark plugs for a 2006 dodge stratus xst, 2.4 litre engine, 4 cyl. Also, where is the timing belt located, is the water pump behind it and should be pulled...


Plug gap = 1.1 mm (0.043")
Timing belts should be replaced at about 50000 to 60000 miles (80000 to 100000 Km.)
The belt is under the plastic covers at the front of the motor behind all the other belts etc. Only change the water pump if it leaks. The PCV valve should not have any effect on the vacuum, it is for ventilating the crankcase, I hope this is the location for yours, the description was not very clear.

2004 Dodge Stratus 6 cyl 2.7L Overheating at idle


Try blowing the radiator core out with compressed air from the engine side to remove bugs and other debris. Make sure the fans turn freely with no noise and that they both come on when the engine heats up. Make sure the radiator cap has a good seal underneath. The three items at the end of your post are not likely. Check the radiator coolant level after it has run, then cooled off--it should be right at the top of the filler. If not, replace the hose going to the reservoir.
